Inside Olivia Newton-John's $5.7 million Aussie mansion: "Selling with a heavy heart"

After owning the extravagant home for 40 years, it’s with a heavy heart that Olivia Newton-John has decided to sell her home in Ballina, in northern NSW. Newton-John has trusted her longtime friend and now real estate agent Jillian McGrath with the sale of her 187-acre home, which has an asking price of $5.5 million.

“We flew up to the area during her 1980 Grease-era as she wanted somewhere she would have extreme privacy,” McGrath explained.

“Since then she bought up adjoining properties, had over 4000 trees planted and has created a beautiful sanctuary.

“She hopes that the person who buys this will live here full-time or a family will enjoy it; she wants someone to love it as much as she has.”

McGrath made a point to mention that the decision to sell the beloved home has nothing to do with Newton-John’s health, as she has recently been diagnosed with cancer for the third time.

“This decision is nothing to do with her health," the real estate agent noted. 

“It’s an ideal residence or maybe for someone who wants it as a holiday escape, as it has been this to her.”

The luxury escape has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a creek, two dams and a tennis court.
